Sorry my friends that I’m having a different schedule this week, or should I say lack of schedule 😉 I guess Tuesday, Thursday and Friday it is for this week and I hope you liked reading my hubby’s interview. (Click HERE if you missed it)
I hinted on Instagram yesterday that I was thinking about framing some Italian cathedral prints that I had in my attic and which came from a limited edition artwork calendar that my parents gave me a long time ago. I keep telling you that hoarding pays off and it really does. Believe me 😉
Here is some examples to show you what I’m talking about in case you don’t have Instagram which you totally should because it’s awesome.
And I did end up framing some of the prints to layer them with my different types of abstract art. I really like it.
I created some vignettes on my nightstands. I think it’s the perfect combo of old and new and I really enjoy it. The one in the back is the art I created and also showed you on Instagram, the second one is Minted (click HERE).
How to achieve the look for yourself?
- mix different metals: my lamps, flowerpots and containers
- mix old and new: antique phone, vintage cathedral prints and abstract art
- add some greenery
And in case you are wondering where the creepy clown sketch is coming from. It was a gift from my high school art teacher who happens to be my parents’ friend and neighbor (click HERE to read more about him in German sorry). Thankfully my husband isn’t scared of clowns because it’s on his side of the bed 😉

Is layering different styles of artwork something you would do?
I really like it.
